Except that isn't the meaning to life, the universe and everything, the mice determined that while 42 was the answer to the ultimate question they didn't actually know what the ultimate question was, thus why the Earth was built (the Earth in Douglas Adams' universe that is) as a supercomputer that would work out the ultimate question.

Plus as some of the comments already stated Douglas Adams picked the number because it's random and inconsequential.

Wasn't the question the one they pulled out of the scrabble bag?

The whole "42 is the answer to life the universe and everything" thing is from the book Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. It's also a movie if you don't want to read the book.
In the book they a towel is the most useful thing a hitchhiker could have ect.

Naruto, one of the greatest animes of all time.
#269 to #267 - roninsword (03/16/2013) [-]
That would explain it, got bored of the anime and never bothered attempting to read the manga...

2 is Ni 3 is San. So does this mean The Number 23 was an advertisement for Nissan?

On one die (6 sided die), the sum of the sides (1+2+3+4+5+6) is 21. Two die is 42. Therefore 42= to die, therefore the answer to life, the universe, and everything is to die.

This isn't numerology though. Far from it. It's simply translation.
